Host program: 

College of sustainable agriculture and environmental sciences, AgroBiosciences Program.

Job description:

The candidate will work on the further characterization of the described Hessian fly resistance gene. The candidate will work on the further fine-mapping of the loci, using genotypic and next-generation sequencing data. Furthermore, the candidate will use multiple laboratories (UM6P- ICARDA and other international partners) and under field-based techniques to further study the expression and function of candidate genes, as well as their proteins. The aim of this project will be to identify the gene of interest and discover novel biological insight about the mechanisms involved in hessian fly resistance.

Responsibilities:

-Characterization of Hessian fly resistance gene

-Conduct fine-mapping of the loci, using genotypic and next-generation sequencing data.

-Understanding of mechanisms involved in hessian fly resistance.

- Characterization of transcriptomics expression 

- Supervision of graduate and postgraduate research projects.

-Contribute to the development of innovative concepts and ideas linked to Molecular Genetics and pest resistance for further research

- Co and lead-authorship of project reports, patents, presentations and published papers;

Selection criteria:

-The position is open for candidates holding a PhD related to plant molecular genetics with  good publication record. Knowledge of plant research and molecular techniques and quantitative genetics, breeding, in addition to crop protection is desired. 

-The position is open for candidates holding a recent PhD.

-The ability to work effectively and collaboratively as part of a multi-disciplinary, plus the motivation and discipline to carry out autonomous research.

Application documents:

  • Covering letter

  • A detailed CV including the list of publications;

  • A synthetic description of research background, relevant research projects and activities, key publications and achievements, and future research interests;

  • Contact detailed for two reference persons;

  • Other documents that the candidate considers important for the recruitment process.

Selection process:
